So you think our continued and unbridled use of the word “nigga” is harmless?
This is an actual store locate in Taiwan that sells hip hop clothing. You see, the rest of the world knows African Americans only through the cultural images and artifacts it consumes. Therefore, when all the cultural images and artifacts scream, “Nigga, nigga, nigga,” it begins to see us only as niggers.
So, when you look into the cultural mirror of the world, and you see a bunch of niggers staring back, don’t even get mad; don’t even get upset. A mirror only reflects what it sees. — Max Reddick
